Why The Breakfast Club Has the Perfect Cast, According to Astrology

Wednesday Journal Entry, Week 26

February 8th 2023 – Karina Lafayette

There are few movies that have really left a mark on me like The Breakfast Club. While some people feel it’s outdated, and there’s no doubt a few of the jokes (and the sexism) haven’t aged well, as someone who’s always been on the fringes of society, it’s hard not to see myself in the characters, which of course is the point of the movie. I don’t think John Hughes really intended to make the film a realistic depiction of high school, he just wanted to write a social experiment on what would happen if five very different people got the chance to see past their differences.

And of course, like almost everything else, there’s an astrological reason for that. For starters, The Breakfast Club was released on February 7th 1985, right in the middle of Aquarius season.

Don’t Feel Bad for Not Going Viral, Tiktok Staff Admit Social Media is Rigged

February 7th 2023 – Karina Lafayette

In a plot twist that almost every person with a social media account saw coming, Tiktok staff admitted earlier last month that they can boost accounts, either for business partnerships or simply because they can. Because like every other app, it tried to sell us a fever dream. The good news, you can officially stop comparing your likes and followers to everyone else, since it’s just an illusion anyway.

When Your Life Becomes a Paycheck: On the Upcoming Amy Winehouse Movie

Wednesday Journal Entry, Week 25 ½

February 1st 2023 – Karina Lafayette

We’re all familiar with the story. A young artist with big dreams pursues a career in entertainment. Eventually, they make it big and thus their Cinderella story unfolds. Along the way, they get the accolades, the awards, the recognition, and the chance to tour and perform with everyone they once only idolized. The fans love them. The press hounds them. The entourage is rolling in cash. Everyone is happy, except for the artist in question.

Generation Halloween: Growing Up with Pluto in Scorpio

February 1, 2023

Wednesday Journal Entry, Week 25

February 1st 2023 – Karina Lafayette

Back in high school, I had a classmate who was so obsessed with Twilight, that anytime her scoliosis would cause discomfort in gym, she would bite (yes, bite), her friends as a way to cope. She also occasionally would go around biting people for the sheer fun of it. While I wasn’t as deep into the Twilight Fandom, I definitely understood, as I secretly had read all four books at home, but felt way too cool to ever admit it in public.

Being a Neurodivergent Artist with Depression is… A Lot

Wednesday Journal Entry, Week 24

January 25th 2023 – Karina Lafayette

The idea of me of all people having a niche is… laughable. Not because I’m trying to seem cool or rebellious by refusing to pick a lane, but because my brain says so. I like many different crafts: filmmaking, astrology, poetry, blogging, storytelling, tarot, etc. If it has a creative angle, then I’ve probably experimented in it at least once, or twice, or maybe half a time before my mind got bored and decided to hyperfixate on something else.

However, everything leads back to writing. Being a writer, a wordsmith, poet, occasional nihilist- whatever, is my happy place, the only place that makes sense for me.

The Day Art Didn’t Exist

It happened just like that. I don’t know how or when. Life seemed very bland, and as I turned on the TV, the only thing available was the local news, airing on repeat. I attempted to turn to the next station, but found the same report over and over again. At first, I shrugged it off, assuming maybe Mercury retrograde was somehow messing with the cable. Instead, I turned on the radio, to two male voices discussing traffic. And same with the TV, when attempting to change the dial to another station, the voices went on. I couldn’t find any music.

If You Were Really Spiritual, You’d Treat Our Planet Better

January 14th 2023 – Karina Lafayette

Growing up, my mom used to kill spiders anytime they came into our house, and since kids mirror their parents, for awhile I did the same thing. Whenever I did this, I would get spider bites the next day, because like any living being, a spider will defend themselves when they feel threatened, or when you threaten anyone they care about. Sometime in my late twenties, I started to notice how fascinating spiders are, with their survival methods and how they spin a web, and killing them no longer made sense. So I got into the habit of trying to catch the spiders in a jar to bring them outside. No more bites.

Surrender to Passion: Chiron in Aries Inconjunct South Node in Scorpio

January 6th 2023 – Karina Lafayette

Ever notice how the things we want the most, are more often than not the things we fear the most? For example, many people complain how frustrating relationships are, yet the minute we meet someone who seems to embody everything we want, we screw things up by pushing them away. Or  we’ll spend years working toward a specific goal, but when the opportunity comes up to take on a certain job or career that’ll propel us forward, we get taken over by self-doubt and good ol’ imposter syndrome. Well luckily, this is the moment to heal those fears once and for all. And while it won’t be easy, it’ll be absolutely worth it.

Whatever You Do, Keep Your South Node with You

November 23, 2022

Wednesday Journal Entry, Week 22

Karina Lafayette – November 23rd 2022

“Chasing dreams is fine but don’t forget your family,” one of my relatives wrote in a comment below one of my posts.

I brushed it off, assuming that she was only saying that to try and hold me back, or to make me feel guilty about moving to Toronto. Now that I think about it, she was right. However, having spent so many years being the “good girl” who would cater to other people, I didn’t want to feel limited by anything. I needed complete freedom, even if it came at the expense of my loved ones and relationships. Growing up, I was always expected to be responsible for others. I watched as women in my family spent their lives dedicated to service and knew that wasn’t for me.
